First Generation Graduation Ceremony

First Generation students may choose to identify themselves as First Generation Graduates by wearing black and green cords during commencement. We will reach out to all graduates as commencement approaches to sign up for cords, but if you have not heard from us or have questions, email us at transiton@unca.edu.

Prior to commencement, First Generation Students may invite their supporters to celebrate their accomplishments with us on campus. Students will have a chance to thank their supporters and will receive their First Generation cords. We would love to have you join us in celebrating our amazing First Generation community and all they have accomplished.
